FDA Approval of Zecuity


On January 17, 2013, the FDA approved Zecuity (sumatriptan iontophoretic transdermal system) for the acute treatment of migraine, with or without aura, in adults.  NuPathe expects to launch Zecuity in the U.S. in the fourth quarter of 2013.


Post-Marketing Requirements


In connection with the receipt of FDA approval of Zecuity, NuPathe is required to conduct the following post-marketing studies:


·                  three pediatric studies in 12-to-17 year olds in order to access the safety and efficacy of Zecuity in adolescents (a study to characterize the pharmacokinetics of Zecuity in adolescents; a placebo-controlled, single-dose efficacy study; and a 12-month, open-label safety study); and


·                  a seven-day, repeat dose rodent dermal study and a rodent dermal carcinogenicity study in order to access the dermal carcinogenicity of sumatriptan.


Cautionary Note About Forward-Looking Statements


Statements in this Form 8-K about the commercial launch of Zecuity in the U.S. and the timing of such launch are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties including


·                  NuPathe’s ability to complete manufacturing scale-up, product validation and manufacture of Zecuity launch supplies;


·                  NuPathe’s ability to establish and manage its supply chain;


·                  NuPathe’s ability to obtain additional capital to fund the launch of Zecuity;


·                  NuPathe’s ability to obtain a U.S. commercial partner for Zecuity;


·                  NuPathe’s ability to establish marketing and sales capabilities;


·                  adverse events or safety risks that could limit Zecuity’s usefulness or require its withdrawal;


·                  the performance of NuPathe’s partners and other third parties; and




·                  compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.


These and additional factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those reflected in forward-looking statements are discussed under the heading “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 and in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2012. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.
